Since our time is limited, we opted to ride a cab/teksi from Gombak station rather than taking the Go Genting bus, which costs 60 MYR so if there’s 3 of you, that’s 20 MYR each.
And because we don’t want to waste a precious time, we also asked our cab/teksi driver to take us to Batu Caves, which is a 45-minutes drive from Genting Highlands, for another 60 MYR.
We also told him to wait for us after climbing the 272 steps to magnificent Batu Caves and take us back to Gombak station for 20 MYR.
How to get here without taking a cab/teksi? See it here.
- Much better to go here early in the morning or maybe late afternoon because its freaking hot at noon, my friend almost collapsed
- If cannot be avoided, bring something to cover you up like umbrella or hat
- Bring lots of water or refreshments
- And towel to make you dry
- Also you can encounter monkeys on your way up and down, so look after your belongings
My friend and I paid 140 MYR for a private tour going to Genting Highlands, Batu Caves, and then back to Gombak station. It’s fair enough especially if you are a group of three and other cab/teksi driver charging you 40-50 MYR from Batu Caves to the train station, which is approximately just 5 minutes away.
